Chot Reyes will be back as the head coach of the Gilas Pilipinas team as Tab Baldwin will be relegated to consultant role.
Reyes served as head coach of the Gilas Pilipinas 2.0 team from 2012-2014 and stirred the team to a silver medal finish in the 2013 FIBA Asia Championship and 21st overall in the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
Meanwhile, Reyes said that every PBA team are now required to lend atleast one player to the gilas pool.
He also said that current members of the Gilas Pipilinas team, which are the formerly the Gilas cadets, will be asked to join the 2016 PBA draft as part of the program.
He strongly believe that PBA players or players with experiences in playing in the PBA are the best ones to include in the Gilas Pool.
